Product Announcement from CITEL SURGE PROTECTION

DS50VGPV is a UL1449 Type 1CA DC Surge Protection Device (SPD) for medium risk PV power applications up to 1500Vdc. The DS50VGPV provides protection against the direct and indirect effects of lightning and has a unique no leakage current design.

It uses CITEL's Long Life Expectancy VG Technology.This is the only no leakage current Surge Protective Device (SPD) on the market. Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs), the main surge component found in most SPD's, rapidly age under an applied DC voltage. CITEL’s VG Technology, thanks to its no leakage current design, does not age under an applied DC voltage, which significantly increases the life expectancy of these SPD's by up to 5 times when compared to standard MOV based designs.
